Cloth nappy liners

Sorry for posting here but I can’t find a nappy thread so this is as close as I can get!

We’ve recently moved to cloth nappies and I’m a total convert. Can anyone tell me if I can flush the soiled paper liners?

I’m currently wrapping them in a nappy bag and throwing them in the bin, which seems daft if the aim is to reduce plastic.

Advice appreciated!

You can flush them if your plumbing is up to it. Unlikely in East Dulwich tho... I live nearby and don't take the risk. The nappy lady discusses this here www.thenappylady.co.uk/news/nappy-liners-disposable-or-reusable.html

Thanks. What do you do with yours? Some websites say you can compost them, but again I’m not really sure on that. Flush the poo off and brown bin??

I just dispose of them in my bathroom bin and empty that every couple of days. Currently breastfed only, don't smell. Appreciate is waste but a tiny amount in comparison to disposables.

Do NOT flush them. This is equivalent to flushing a wet wipe and it's where fatbergs come from. All water companies tell you not to.flush stuff.like this. I use fleece liners. The poo comes off easily.enough with a swish under the flushing water. When I did use disposable liners I just dropped the poo in the loo and dropped them in the bin, no nappy bag, just empty.your bin frequently.
